Dana Falconberry: Halletts LP

Late last year we made mention that Austin, Texas was not particularly familiar ground for our music exploration, but sometimes the cage needs to be rattled a bit and today's featured artist did quite the job of it. Our original review of Michigan native turned Austin blossom Dana Falconberry happened in September 2006 with her impressive Paper Sailboat EP. A more recent follow-up took place in April 2008, when we posted a video from Dana's full-length debut Oh Skies Of Grey, and now there is a much-welcomed update to report. The brand new self-released LP, titled Halletts, will be made available next week with a live performance/release party to coincide at local Austin venue Mohawk on January 14. For those not familiar with the vocal stylings of Ms. Faconberry, expect a warm treat in her distressed, yet overwhelmingly enchanting delivery. Such a beautiful song as a preview for the new album... please have a listen.

MP3: Nightingale

*Bonus* A YouTube video for the song Baby Blue Sky from the 2008 album Oh Skies Of Grey.
